I needed some brain candy and as always Suzann Ledbetter delivered! For what it is (the opening book of a new mystery romance series), it was fun. It has: a smart, but not quite together heroine; a capable, lovingly exploited sidekick; and the old-fashioned but learning, gentlemanly hero. It was funny and light - Brain Candy!

Although the heroine of this mystery series lives in historical Colorado, that doesn’t make her any less independent or spunky. The combination of mystery, romance, and a Colorado setting may appeal to you.

Intriguing mystery that takes place in the Old West finds detective Joby Sawyer on the trail of a philandering husband and a jewel thief killer in two separate cases. Or are they related?

I feel like I missed something, like a book that comes before. Entertaining but the pace was a little slow. I'm more interested in the main character's back-story.

Strongly antifeminist, and insulting to the Victorian sense of science. They _never_ blew things up accidentally.

The story was a little all over the place, so it was hard to follow. I did like the lead character, even if she did talk a bit like a dime store western most of the time.

Fifteen or twenty minutes of intense Website surfing suggests that biographical segments are usually devoted to former vocations, titles published and awards won. The latter two categories seem redundant to additional electronic buttonry labeled Book List, to homepages advertising current tomes, and mentions elsewhere of honors bestowed, humbly received and treasured in perpetuity.
